Dancers are storytellers. They’re trained to capture passion with their bodies. These incredible photos illustrate the unbelievable talent of ballet dancers. Composed in random situations in well-known and familiar settttings around Saigon, the elegance and skill of the dancers contrast starkly with their mundane background, elevating an everyday activity like eating pho into an art form. This is a tribute to their grace and elegance.

A special thank you to Nguyen Le Nhat Tan, Doan Vu Minh Tu, Dam Duc Nhuan, and Tran Hoang Yen for their performance.
